Prince Harry Jokes That He ‘Can’t Hide’ Meghan Markle at Public Events

Prince Harry had a ready answer when a bold fan asked him about his girlfriend Meghan Markle on Thursday.

Attending a ceremony to honor Britain’s fallen soldiers at Westminster Abbey’s Field of Remembrance, Harry shared a lighthearted moment on an otherwise solemn occasion.

Matt Weston, 28, who lost both his legs while he was serving in Afghanistan in 2009, seized his moment with the royal to ask the question on everyone’s minds.

“I took the mickey and asked where his missus was and he said she wasn’t here,” Weston told reporters. “I asked if she would come next time because she’s awesome, and he said he couldn’t hide her anywhere — but I said you wouldn’t have to hide her.

“I would love to meet her — I think she’s very cool. He’s a very lucky man and she’s brilliant.”

Weston, who was injured when an improvised explosive device (IED) exploded while he was serving with the Royal Engineers 33 Regiment, said of Harry, “It was great seeing him again, I met him before at the Afghanistan and Iraq memorial unveiling.”

Harry also stopped to talk to 7-year-old Harrison Degiorgio-Lewis. The little boy was wearing the medals and beret that had belonged to an uncle who was killed in Afghanistan in 2008.

“He has been coming here for four years now to represent his uncle,” said Helen Lewis, Harrison’s grandmother. “Harry recognised him — they have a bond, as they share a birthday. Harry asked him about his uncle Aaron, and he said how proud he was.”
